to be in the first term. there are parallels to reagan and clinton who had first terms and successful economies for the second terms. are you hoping you are going to get the kind of economic security if not prosperity in this term that will allow you to do the thing that is barack obama when you sailed in on hope and change hoped he could do? >> piers i do believe the economy is ip pron proving. one of the reasons the economy is improving is that it was brave. it was not a popular decision at the time. it was brave to move forward on the recovery act. without that, we would have slid into a second great depression. it was brave to stand up the financial industry when it was on collapse. because he understand that we needed to move the economy forward. and now we are reaping the benefits of that. i believe that gives us a chance to move forward on a series of fronts and further strengthen our economy. we are not losing 800,000 jobs a month anymore. we are gaining them. and that foundation that has been laid it is a foundation on which we can build progress. >> one is i understand that the first
our economy and create jobs and the decisions we have to make in the coming weeks to help that come about. it is part of governing that these issues arise and we have to deal with them. >> this is a question on the fiscal cliff. you say he will not sign any bill that extends the bush cuts. it is highly unlikely that he would get a bill like that. how open is he to the notion that -- in terms of going forward? is he willing them out completely? >> i am giving you a pretty good printers on the president's thinking going into the process that he said it begins with the specific proposal he has before congress, a plan that achieves balance and that allows us to continue to invest in important areas of the economy. he has not been wedded to every detail of that plan. i will not negotiate hypothetical details. i was side speaker banner and say i am not in the position of boxing ourselves and others. he looks forward to the meeting with leaders in congress. and as clear principles fam belief that we can reach a compromise is comparable. it would allow us to address the fiscal cliff challen
% while the economy added 3.4 million new jobs, all of which sounds great but a federal deficit would rise by $503 billion in 2013 and another $67682 billion. is the emerging choice jobs versus larger, short-term deficits. given the acrimony between the white house and the house of representatives is a deal likely? erskine bowles wrote today in "the washington post" and i quote... but throughout the campaign, president obama insisted that any deal must include tax hikes on the well-to-do. something this campaign senior as viser david axelrod emphasized today. >> he talked about it in debates and speeches. on the need for balanced deficit reduction that included some new revenues and he was re-elected by you know, in a significant way. but if the attitude is that, you know nothing happened on tuesday, that would be unfortunate. >> eliot: that seems to be house speaker john boehner's attitude toward any tax hike at all. take a listen. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. i
". >>> president obama says his re-election proves that americans want action on the economy, not just politics as usual: just days after his victory, he's laying out a framework for compromise with the republicans to avoid $600 billion in automatic spending cuts and tax hikes in the next year. he says he's open to new ideas, but he warns the federal government can't cut its way to prosperity. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. and that means asking the wealthest americans to pay a little more in taxes. that's how we did it -- that's how we did it in the 1990s when bill clinton was president. that's how we can reduce the deficit while still making the investments we need to build a strong middle class and a strong economy. that's the only way we can still afford to train our workers or help our kids pay for college, or make sure that good jobs and clean energy or high-tech manufacturing don't end up in countries like china. now, already i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments while reducing our deficit
.s. economy due to hit the fiscal cliff, trillion of tax increases and spending cuts, president obama called for a catch henceive deal and said he is not going to one on the top 2%. >> we cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. we can make sure that middle class taxes don't go up. if we get that in place we are removing half of the fiscal cliff. >> speaker john boehner offered what he considers a balanced approach generating the revenue from tax reform and entitlement reform. late today, boehner said the president's position is flawed. >> we are not going to hurt our economy an make job creation more difficult. which is exactly what that plan would do. >> letter sent by the u.s. chamber of commerce and signed by 232 organizations calls on the president and congress to immediately extend all the tax cuts and find other cuts to replace sequestration. the president suggested taking a closer look at reforming entitlements without offing details and says he would like to simplify the tax code. mr. obama says he wants congress to act now to extend tax cut for middle class and tr
majority of them said that taxing the wealthy was a majority of that. there are other issues on the economy. 70% to 20% said that they trusted the economy. that should not be their goal. their goal should be to hit the 40% level that w. was able to do. that will make them competitive. and they need to also created goal for blacks. they cannot conceive 97% of the black vote. start with 12%, 17%, something. they need to make inroads. is unrealistic to say let's go for hispanics. if they can get to the 38% range, they can be competitive. in the same way, we're talking about the democratic problem with whites. >> in 2013, there is a big deal. comprehensive immigration reform was taken off the table. how far does this get you with this next emerging electorate? what else does the party have to do to get back to the kind of numbers that bush saw? >> is a step in the right direction, but it is far from the whole thing. it is basically ronald reagan mindset that says we welcome anyone who shares our values and our desire for lower taxes. bill back and listen to some of ronald reagan's rhetoric. --

today make one more point about the type of campaign at that romney ran. focused on the economy and wanted to make the obama economy, but he woke up wednesday morning and probably saw an exit poll figure that had him devastated for people, 50% of the electorate still thought this economy was george w. bush's fault. it's astonishing. >> it's astonishing. >> and one of the failures, not making a distinction in the campaign, the theme explanation why he would be different than george w. bush. when we come back, the soul searching begins as republicans face another four years of a democrat in the white house and at least two more in the senate minority. what the party needs to do to regroup for 2014 and beyond next. to come home for the holidays. that's double miles you can actually use... sadly, their brother's white christmas just got "blacked out."

on the economy and wanted to make the obama economy, but he woke up wednesday morning and probably saw an exit poll figure that had him devastated for people, 50% of the electorate still thought this economy was george w. bush's fault. it's astonishing. >> it's astonishing. >> and one of the failures, not making a distinction in the campaign, the theme explanation why he would be different than george w. bush. when we come back, the soul searching begins as republicans face another four years of a democrat in the white house and at least two more in the senate minority. what the party needs to do to regroup for 2 2 2 2 2 2 >> another white house loss for the g.o.p. coupled with their failure once again to take back the senate. many in the party calling for change. what can republicans do to regroup for 2014 and beyond. jason, a wonderful time of the the season, called recrimination. (laughter) >> otherwise known to journalists as shooting the wounded, which is our specialty, so, what, how much trouble is the republican party in? >> they're in a lot of trouble, the coalition needs to expand.
their ideas as well. in a time when our economy is still recovering from the great recession, our top priority has to be jobs and growth. that is the focus of the plan that i talked about during the campaign. [applause] it is a plan to reward small businesses and manufacturers to create jobs here, not overseas, a plan to give people the chance to get the education and training that businesses are looking for right now. it is a plan to make sure this country is a global leader in research and technology and clean energy, which will attract new companies and high- wage jobs for america. it is a plan put americans back to work, including veterans, rebuilding our infrastructure, and it is a plan to reduce our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. our work is made that much more urgent because at the end of this year we face a series of deadlines that require us to make major decisions about how to pay our deficit down, decisions that will have a huge impact on economies and the middle class, both now and in the future. last year i worked with democrats and republicans to cut $1 trillion in sp
and keeping the economy growing. all of it goes back to the looming fiscal cliff. $700 billion in tax hikes that will take place on january 1st unless there's a deal. >> he's going to reach out in a bipartisan way. . he's going to stick to his position on the revenues, but say we have to work together and i'm willing to do my share and lead my party. >> that 396 referring to the bush tax cuts. to make a deal, the president will need to work with congress, especially house republicans and they have been opposed to tax increases. we will hear from john baoehner too for the republican party. >> raising taxes on small business people is the wrong prescription. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. putting increased revenues on the table but through reforming our tax code. >> i want to bring in ruth marcus, columnist at "the washington post" and perry bacon, an msnbc contributor. what's your sense of this? are we setting up for a feisty but doable deal? but is it also possible we're in for a battle of epic proportions? >> yes to both ques
term. there are parallels to reagan and clinton who had first terms and successful economies for the second terms. that emboldened them to be braver than they might have been. are you hoping you are going to get the kind of economic security if not prosperity in this term that will allow you to do, perhaps, the things that barack obama when he sailed in on hope and change hoped he could do? >> well, piers, i do believe the economy is improving. but i want to challenge a bit of your premise, one of the reasons the economy is improving is because this president was brave. it was brave to intervene and save the auto industry, which was not a popular decision at the time. it was brave to move forward on the recovery act. which again was not popular at the time. without that, we would have slid into a second great depression. it was brave to stand up the financial industry when it was on collapse. even though that was an unpopular thing to do. because he understand that we needed to move the economy forward. and now we are reaping the benefits of that bravery and good decisions be
important issue was. the economy was way up on top, almost 3/5ths of people said the economy was the number-one issue. the percentage who said that foreign policy was the most important issue was down in the single digits. that is not the driver. foreign policy is usually not the biggest driver. it is worth noting that those voters who said that foreign policy was the most important issue, president obama won that group. host: that made for about 5%. the economy, 59% put that as the most important issue. federal budget deficit, 15%. talk about how the health care law played into voters' attitudes? 18% said it was the most important issue. guest: that is an important thing. almost one in five voters said that health care was the most important issue. the president won roughly three- quarters of that vote. throughout the republican primaries, the issue of obamacare was a huge rallying cry. in 2010, the republicans won some big victories because of anger on the part of conservative voters about the president's health-care law. by the time you get to this election, you see this turnaround were
everyone will be affected if there is no deal. it could throw the economy back into recession and cost no income families about $2,000 more next year. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. [video clip] >> i enjoyed watching book tv -- >> i enjoy the rebroadcast of various television news programs. i like that they provide coverage without the sound bites. it really gives me an opportunity to consume as much information on what is going on. c-span is a great way to kind of get an unfiltered view of the day's events. >> c-span, created by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> "washington journal" continues. ,ost: we're back with evan bayh now co-founder of the no labels organization. let me begin with the petraeus resignation. is your reaction -- what is your reaction? guest: it is if personal tragedy. he was doing a fabulous job as director. we're fortunate that we have a great leadership team. michael morrell house now now stepped- hasno in. host: did he have to resign? guest: my own answer is yeah, i thi
about, you know, what students get in debt, like that's the biggest problem in the economy? it's crazy. >> there's also an irony here, too, because mitt romney represents the forces within our society who get, if you want to call them gifts, the most gifts. the defense industry, he was prepared to say he will increase the deficit to give you more. the elderly who mainly voted for mitt romney, if you want to look at the apportionment of government spending, get a far disproportionate share. most of the quote, unquote gift if you want to call it that, they're mostly going to the people who voted for mitt romney, red states who are basket cases, wards of the blue states. >> we're not against that. >> jared, final word to you. >> from the very beginning, it always looked to me like mitt romney and his minions looked down at the american economy and decided rich people don't have enough, and i just think that's not the economic analysis that's going to move this country forward. >> absolutely. >> and i'll bet he wasn't saying that when the olympics were asking for gifts from the federal gov
sector is still on a capital strike. if barack obama wants strong growth in the u.s. economy, he's going to have to extend his hand to the private interests that he vilified so much of the last two years to get reelected. dagen: more spending temecula of the federal reserve sitting ready and waiting make in our money and spend it. >> federal spending for the last 25 years has been to a percentage gdp. brock obama wanted to be for 23 percent of about 24%. the only way you can afford to do that if he extracts revenue out of the private sector. there is a real dilemma at the center of what he wants to do, and that is why i think we will be looking at gridlock for a little while. connell: okay. dagen: as always, be well. connell: we talked about the dow today being down a little bit, but nothing like yesterday. traders are calling it an obama sell-off, but the thing is, the polls consistently showing the president and the lead going into the election. why wasn't all that price did? brian jacobson. what do you think? >> i think it was partially priced in. it was basically a dead heat going in
an address from the east room of the white house about the economy and reducing the deficit. it is a speech republicans will be watching closely coming up and to the lame-duck session. as reluctant that battle and beyond, we want to hear about your top priorities for the second term. how successful do you think he will be at addressing them? give us a call on the democratic 585-3880.- republicans 202-585-3881. independents 202-585-3882. a very good morning to you. a lot of discussion about the president's second term and what needs to be addressed and the near and long term. we want to hear from you, but we will point out a few headlines. this from "the wall street journal." also from "the washington post." the front page of the commentary section of "the washington times." also, we want to point you to the front page of the business section of "the new york times." a front-page article on the difficult decisions involving the housing market. i want to bring you to the front page of "bloomberg busines sweek." that is a picture of president obama perhaps what he might look like four years fr
that will make a difference in the future economy of this country. we are in a mess. he is in a position like a lot of previous presidents. he's got to be thinking, am i going to leave a disastrous legacy in the hands of our grandchildren? or am i going to step up and lead? i used to get criticized because i was a deal maker. i talked to people like joe lieberman, we would find a way to get things done. you have to give a little to get a little. doesn't wind up getting you in trouble? oh, yes. but after all, that is what this is all about. the president has said himself, and i quoted him in an article that may run in the "washington post" tomorrow, he says america deserves better. it begins with him. mcconnell has to be engaged. harry reid has to be engaged. we are at a profit this year. maybe it is the fiscal cliff. but we have to act on a lot of really serious things and we had some of it now. we have to do a lot of it next year. if they do the right thing, that our country will benefit the legacy will be secure. so i want to open this up. a lot of people in this room are engaged in this ef

cliff -- this affects the whole economy of this country going forward. one of the big questions is going to be that republicans are saying we don't want to see any rate increase, we just want to see revenues through closing loopholes, top administration officials, including secretary tim geithner, he says we want to see rates increase for upper income people. we will see where the president comes down with that. that will be a big issue. on friday, he will meet with congressional leaders. also, if he's willing to put on the table what he did in august of 2011. that is major cuts to entitlement, social security, medicare. and of course, questions about benghazi. he has never fully accounted about the warnings beforehand. you know, did he know that there were all these warnings about security, lack of security in benghazi at the consulate in august. that is a month before the attack. of course, david petreaus -- when did he hear about it? and if he did not hear about it, until last week about the election -- why not? is he upset about our? megyn: that's right, does he have any issue with t
the economy stronger white a set of commitments to finance, a high level of public investments in infrastructure and education and a lot of bipartisan support for that. i think there's a lot of support for doing the obvious things you have to do. you have to pass an extension tax of the amt is very important to do. you listen carefully there's a lot of support for trying to make real progress on the long-term fiscal soundness. there's a lot of benefit in doing that for the economy. how you do that is important. so i think this is a solvable problem and we want to do as much as we can to take an advantage of this opportunity to make some progress in each of those fronts. >> there's one thing about which they're doesn't appear to be a lot of agreement and that is should the bush tax cuts on the overt and hundred 50,000 crowd be extended or should taxes be raised? >> i heard jay carney an hour or so ago say the president will not agree to anything that extends the tax cuts on the upper brackets. that sounds like a line in the sand; is it? >> i do think it's important to start by a
lines for these tax cuts that would cause damage to the economy if they're not dealt with. extending those tax cuts for 98% of the american people would deal with more than half in dollar terms of the impact caused by the fiscal cliff. there are other challenges we need to address including the sequester but congress ought to, the house ought to pass those tax cuts right away because it would send a tremendous positive signal to the american people that in the wake of this election, we can at the very least, come together and convert into law a bill that everyone agrees should become law, republicans and democrats alike, the president included. and we will then continue to work on those issues where we have broader disagreement. and that's where the president has invited leaders of congress to the white house next week. that's why he will be meeting with business leaders and labor leaders and others to get their ideas about how to move forward. he does have his own very specific plan that reduces the deficit by $4 trillion, that does it in a balanced bay and we can invest in research
it is a slope, it is going to hurt the economy. it's not going to happen overnight, we're not going to go into a major recession overnight, but, you know, the democrats clearly don't want to sacrifice unemployed workers and, you know, and the economy as a whole to, you know -- and so that's where they're vulnerable. and this is hypersimplified. i mean, i don't even -- you know, the tax increase is not just a bush tax cut, but it's a payroll tax cut, and unemployment is another big factor there, the extended unemployment. so the, you know, sort of a point -- okay. well, okay, i'm going to skip ahead, but just a couple of points to be made here. you know, economists are all glad that now -- or keynesians are glad that there's an implicit, you know, that the whole discussion around the fiscal cliff implies that you're a keynesian, that you really believe the economy's going to go south if you, if you close the deficit even though it's not usually stated in those words. you know, a couple of details are, you know, yes, generally speaking all else equal you reduce the deficit, you will have, y
economy, stronger, healthier economy means more americans working and more revenues, which is what the president is seeking. this framework can lead to common ground. i hope the president will respond today in that same spirit. as i said on wednesday, this is an opportunity for the president to lead. >> that was speaker of the house, john boehner, talking about the looming fiscal cliche. republicans are ready to sit down at the table with president obam a. but is he prepared to compromise? listen to when he had to say earlier today. >> i want to be clear. i am not wedded to every dedale tail of my plan. i am open to compromise. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 are not asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i am not going to do that. i want to point out, this was a central question during the election. it was debated over and over again. and on tuesday night, we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. and that includes democrat independents and a lot of r
on the economy in the first year of this ten-year. that is slowing down the gdp by four percentage points that's kicking us into a deep recession. >> i think everybody's aware of that. i don't think that anybody, whether new members coming in now or whether existing members who have been there for a while i don't think anybody has any illusions of the urgency of this. it doesn't mean it's going to be easy. john boehner has to deal with the problems he had to deal with a year ago in terms of his caucus. it's really important that we are in a place where we're further away from the 2010 victory for the tea party. the members of his caucus that were most difficult to deal with a summer ago, those people were coming off of a huge victory in 2010, now much further down road and coming off -- many got re-elected tuesday but the whole political environment has changed given the success of not just president obama but democrats more broadly in congress. and it does change everyone's incentive structure. there's no one, no one, who is politically well affected positively affected if the country drops i
would jump to 9.1% by the end of next year and the nation's economy could slide into another recession. joining me for our daily fix, special panel, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc. >> greg, u.s. economics editor for the economist and "new york times" andrew ross sorkin, co-host of "squawk box" on cnbc. welcome all. first chris cizilla and mark halperin, the political side of this, chris, your reporting so far, we've seen speaker boehner today, what chuck schumer had to say, the president's expected to announce that he is inviting all of the leaders to the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff. >> right. i think what we've seen broadly is marking out of territory, with a strong emphasis on willing to work across the aisle. i don't expect president obama to go into specific detail of how he's going to get this done. i do, however, expect kind of this, you know, the election is now over, let us come together tone. and to be honest, i think he does have a stronger hand in this, than m
to tackle the fiscal cliff, an economic mandate that could throw the economy into a tail spin unless democrats and republicans stop it all. house speaker john boehner wants a deal on spending cuts. president obama says that is not enough. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine cuts with revenue. >> joining us is jonathan strong. even if tax rates went up on the wealthiest households earning more than $250,000 a year the president, as the president demands, this would actually do almost nothing to reduce the deficit. i look at the joint tax committee report of conscious saying it would reduce the deficit only by 7%. that is 7% out of $1.1 trillion. in many ways is the president's solution more of an illusion? >> he is trying to sell this as a matter of fairness. he seems to be making progress politically on that front. you have a good point. another good question, there isn't any theory this would help the economy. the estimates are it would hurt this the economy. is now the right time for that? people are still hurting out there. >> gregg: the president is
the most if we allow the economy to go over the cliff. and i think if nothing is done the economy will go over a cliff. who gets blamed lex they blame the republicans now. the democrats won the election. the voters are not always rational. the way they hand out blame. there's a lot of speculation going on right now at leadership levels in both houses and both parties, with the white house briefing a huge sigh of relief that the polls were all right, but now we are stuck with this for four more years. how do we deal with this? i don't think anybody knows how the lame-duck is really going to work, other than, you know, will be a continuing resolution. will be a kick the can down the road kind of resolution. the question is how many things will be added to the train as it's moving through and what shape will it be, and that's great uncertainty. >> congressman gephardt, as senator bennet just like that, this could get pretty messy even if they come up with some solution that involves duct tape and kleenex but it could get ugly before it is resolved. and doesn't that affect the leverage here f
the only democratic candidate running on a record of a weak economy and debt crisis that we face and still win. yet, he did. they did very many things that were right. you can point to a couple of things with mitt romney. he may not have been the perfect candidate for 2012 given his corporate turnaround background, secondly, he did not get something republicans have counted on and that is the white working-class voters. in states like ohio, the ads attacking mayor romney as a corporate raider and buccaneer that went on for many months put on by the obama campaign seemed to work. the white working-class vote did not turn out for mitt romney in the numbers he needed. host: you had a piece yesterday, "the survivor in chief." you know to that they expose the myth of the enthusiastic democratic voter. guest: it was a myth i subscribe to for a while. i am sure you read about this over and over again. the democratic voters were dispirited and they were not feeling enthusiastic about the campaign. it was the conservatives and republicans fired up and getting ready to go. the notion was, he would h
